Schaff begins his history with an examination of the preparation for Christianity in Judaism and the heathen world and the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The 8 volume series concludes with a general introduction to modern church history and a thorough analysis of the productive period of the Reformation, tracing the Protestant movement in Germany and Switzerland to the close of the 16th century. There are footnotes, charts, maps and each volume contains its own alphabetical index.
Schaff taught church history at German Reformed Seminary in Mercersburg, Penn., and Union Theological Seminary in New York. He was involved in the formation of the Evangelical Alliance, the revision of the English Bible (the Revised Version), and the Alliance of the Reformed Churches. Schaff was founder of the American Society of Church History.

Philip Schaff (18191893) wrote one of the finest histories of the church available. His eight-volume work, which covers Christian history from the apostles to the Swiss Reformation, incorporates discussion of ideas and ideals throughout the history of the church with the requisite facts and figures for each period of history. Each volume contains maps, charts, notes, bibliographies, and an index.
Robert5 Stars Out Of 5One of the BestMarch 15, 2016RobertQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Philip Schaff was a master of the history of Christianity, with very few competitors. His command of the material is unsurpassed. If you want a full scope history with detail when it's necessary, if you can handle history that also explains the history of ideas (doctrine), then this set will serve you well. When I pick up Schaff, I can get lost in his compelling narrative for hours. I also appreciate hearing someone who wasn't from the 20th/21st century explain events from the past - he doesn't share our biases, which makes him refreshing.

I recommend it to everybody who love Church history.

This set is the 4th printing, dated May 2011. Since the set is a reproduction of the revised 2nd edition from 1888, the typeface is an older style and there are occasional ink marks. The print quality of this set is going to be about the same as earlier print editions.
